Two pairs of 'active ' pants made. Yayy!!
It has been a packed and hectic weeks..the last two weeks of December 2011...All focus and energy was channeled towards Nazmin Delightful Treats activity/business. And Alhamdulillah it was a success.
Finally, yesterday I had the chance to cut the fabrics I bought recently. Had nothing else in mind except to sew Hafiy and Akif some 'summer' pants. They are running out of daily pants to wear anyway. This time I decided to splurge a bit on designers cotton for them. The urges came after seeing Toni of Make It Perfect post - A Gazillion Shorts. She sewed 13 pairs of summer shorts for her children, nieces and nephews. Hers are reversible but mine are not.
I call these the active pants because they can wear it day or night. At home, to their grandma's, going to shops (ermm..not to shopping malls or any formal events though hehe)..or even as their PJ's especially on hot nights what we are experiencing for the past one week.
Planned to make 3 pairs each out of 3 yards of fabric. However I managed to sew only two yesterday. Hafiy was so excited about the pants, he insisted that I finish sewing them then so he could immediately wears it. It was 7pm..and was not supposed to sew at that hour. But since he 'begged', siap pegi mandi just so he could wear them..how can I resist. Only a wee bit more to sew by the way. By 7.30pm, both kids were already jumping up and down their new pants ,LOL.
Hope to sew four more by this week as I need to get back on sewing orders next week. Simply can't say no to returning customers and old friends requests. But there will be limited custom slots this time. Would not want to stress myself with deadlines..when I should be enjoying every bit of my 3rd trimester moment :). Yup! at 28 weeks this week. Gosh! And oh!Gender of the baby...It's going to be a suprise..for you. Will it be 4 boys or 3+1 this time? I won't tell. But maybe you'll figure out if you follow my blog right to when before I deliver *wink*
